Let’s Play Humpday Giveaway! #23 (July 31 Edition)

Hi guys! Happy Humpday! Hope your summer’s going great! One of the cool things about the specialty coffee industry is that life for us slows down a little in this warm season. Customers linger over cold brew, coworkers go on vacation, and the coffee conferences, trade shows, and competitions go on hiatus, as well. So I was excited to hear from Matt Brown at Coava Coffee Roasters here in Portland, Ore., recently about some cool new projects the microroaster is working on ”namely, this tight new packaging.

Coava's new packaging is not only gorgeous and super sturdy, it's recyclable, as well.

Matt was so excited about the packaging that he offered up a killer prize pack from Coava for a Humpday Giveaway prize! Did I think you guys would dig that? Hells yes!

The winner of this week’s Humpday Giveaway will not only win one of Coava’s radical Zeppelin style tshirts, but also a bag of Coava’s delicious Blanca Diva Sanchez from Colombia,  and a bag of Santa Sophia from El Salvador! That’s insane!

This week's Humpday Giveaway prize is this awesome Coava Zeppelin T (modeled by DevChap) in your choice of size, as well as not one but TWO bags of Coava Coffee!
